week 36- bump update and letters to Reagan (or Raegan)

Yes, you read that title right. We are back to debating the spelling of her name. Oy vey! Who knows what or when we decide on the spelling. It seriously could be when I'm holding her after she's born! But hey, at least little miss has a name! :)

Bump Update
How far along? 36 weeks

Total weight gain: 31 pounds. At my last appointment I hadn't gained any weight. My doctor is very proud of me! In the past 6 weeks I've gained 1 pound. Apparently I just put all my weight on early in my pregnancy!

Maternity clothes? I'm surviving on t-shirts, tank tops, and shorts!

Stretch marks? nope! Wahoo!

    Sleep: ugh. Don't even mention sleep to me right now. If I can even fall asleep, the night welcomes continuous braxton hicks, cramping (tummy and legs), and constant peeing. I dread night time.

Best moment this week: having our 2nd baby shower for our sweet Rae!

Miss anything? being able to easily do things like pick something up off the ground or tie my shoes! I should get a gold medal for tying my shoes every night before our walk!

Food cravings: fruit, cheese, avocado, vanilla greek yogurt.

Anything making you queasy or sick? nope, but I have noticed I am starting to get nauseous again at night, so I make sure my stomach is full when I go to bed.

Gender: girl and I'm making the sono tech check and make sure again at her sono on Monday :)

Labor signs: I'm definitely having Braxton Hicks contractions and I'm very crampy. I do have occasional pressure down there so she's getting ready!

Symptoms: round ligament pain,peeing constantly and urgently, swollen ankles, winded easily, braxton hicks, crampy, pressure.

Belly button in or out?  In! but looking more like a belly button slit these days. Who knows if it'll ever pop?

Wedding rings on or off: On! I'm so surprised!

Happy or moody most of the time: When I saw Dr. Ku last week she said "you're still smiling!" Why yes I am! I am one happy momma who can't wait to meet her baby!

Looking forward to: Rae's last baby shower this weekend! Then we will buy any last items that we still need and then just wait till little Miss makes her grand entrance!

week 35- bump update and letters for Reagan

Bump Update
How far along? 35 weeks (I actually posted on the day I turned 35 weeks instead of at the end of the week like I normally do! Haha)

Total weight gain: 31 pounds, my goal is 40 pounds for the whole pregnancy. We will see if I make it!

Maternity clothes? ummm yes. I'm getting so big that I'm starting to rotate outfits because only a few things still fit and are still comfortable.

Stretch marks? nope! but my tummy is very veiny and purple. Stretching like crazy!

    Sleep: It's touch and go. Every night is different. Sometimes I'm able to fall right asleep, other nights, it takes HOURS! I just have so much on my mind from things I still need to get done (like pack our hospital bags, nope still haven't done that, even though I planned on doing it last week) to the actual process of getting this baby out of me! Oh goodness.

Best moment this week: this actually has nothing to do with my pregnancy, BUT my sister got engaged!! YAY!!!! She is my best friend and I love her so much and now Reagan is not only going to have an aunt, but an UNCLE too!!
the newly engaged couple, Derek and Courtney
so stinking excited to start planning!
he did GOOD!
our families celebrating! So happy we could be there to see the proposal!
Miss anything? The weight gain is really getting to me. It makes doing anything hard. I am looking forward to getting back to my pre-pregnancy weight or somewhat close!

Food cravings: fruit, cheese, avocado, vanilla greek yogurt.

Anything making you queasy or sick? nope, but my sense of smell is very strong so I smell EVERYTHING!

Gender: girl

Labor signs: nope but I occasionally I will have some pain in my lower abdomen. I think it's just round ligament pain.

Symptoms: round ligament pain, occasional heartburn, feeling full all the time, peeing constantly and urgently, swollen ankles, winded easily, braxton hicks.

Belly button in or out?  In! but looking more like a belly button slit these days. Who knows if it'll ever pop?

Wedding rings on or off: On, but pretty darn tight. They may be coming off very soon!

Happy or moody most of the time: happy, but very driven lately. I have so much on my mind that I want to get done, that it's made me alittle cray cray :) And the fact that Kyle is thinking he may want to spell her name Raegan instead of Reagan like we've been planning on is kind of stressing me out! It needs to be decided like NOW!!!

Looking forward to: same as last week! finishing up her nursery, getting all the final details put together, getting the carseat installed, packing our hospital bags, buying all the last odds and ends, having the last 2 showers.

week 34- bump update and letters for Reagan

Bump Update
How far along? 34 weeks

Total weight gain: 31 pounds, my goal is 40 pounds for the whole pregnancy. We will see if I make it!

Maternity clothes? ummm yes.

Stretch marks? nope! but my tummy is very veiny and purple. Stretching like crazy!

    Sleep: It's touch and go. Every night is different. Sometimes I'm able to fall right asleep, other nights, it takes HOURS!

Best moment this week: finishing the nursery and getting everything packed for the hospital. I want to be ready to go if she decides to come early.

Miss anything? I miss being able to buy adorable summer outfits. Went to Charming Charlie with my sister and she got these amazingly adorable shirts and I wanted them so bad!!!

Food cravings: fruit, cheese, avocado, vanilla greek yogurt.

Anything making you queasy or sick? nope, but my sense of smell is very strong so I smell EVERYTHING!

Belly button in or out?  In! but looking more like a belly button slit these days. Who knows if it'll ever pop?

Wedding rings on or off: On, and I'm honestly surprised. Once the heat turns up, which will be soon I'm sure, I'm positive they won't be on anymore.

Happy or moody most of the time: happy, but very driven lately. I have so much on my mind that I want to get done, that it's made me alittle cray cray :)

Looking forward to: finishing up her nursery, getting all the final details put together, getting the carseat installed, packing our hospital bags, buying all the last odds and ends, having the last 2 showers.

week 33- bump update and letters for Reagan

//shirt- Old Navy// skirt- PinkBlush Maternity//

Bump Update
How far along? 33 weeks

Total weight gain: 28 pounds. I have an appointment on Wednesday so we will have an update.

Maternity clothes? I am loving wearing tanks and maxi skirts. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be stocking up on a few of these before this pregnancy is over.

Stretch marks? nope! and I'm so glad because I'm going to a family reunion this weekend and totally plan on being at the pool the whole time and I'd rather not subject everyone to stretch marks!

    Sleep: I'm sleeping great, when I can finally fall asleep. That's been the problem lately. I sleep for an hour then wake up and am awake for a few hours. I normally fill that time with some TV and a bowl of ice cream. Normally does the trick :)

Best moment this week: getting more of the nursery done. I can't wait for it to be completely finished so I can share pictures. We are still waiting on her glider and I need to finish getting the pulls for the dresser. Almost finished!

Miss anything? I really don't miss anything. I have enjoyed being pregnant so much and know I will miss it. The one thing I won't miss is the extra weight I'm lugging around. Makes doing the simplest thing really hard.

Food cravings: loving eating fruit when I need a snack. and cheese!

Anything making you queasy or sick? nope, but my sense of smell is very strong so I smell EVERYTHING!

Gender: girl

Labor signs: nope and there better not be for awhile!

Symptoms: round ligament pain, occasional heartburn, feeling full all the time, peeing constantly and urgently, swollen ankles, winded easily, braxton hicks.

Belly button in or out?  In! but looking more like a belly button slit these days. Who knows if it'll ever pop?

Wedding rings on or off: On, and I'm honestly surprised. Once the heat turns up, which will be soon I'm sure, I'm positive they won't be on anymore.

Happy or moody most of the time: happy, but very driven lately. I have so much on my mind that I want to get done, that it's made me alittle cray cray :)

Looking forward to: finishing up her nursery, getting all the final details put together, getting the carseat installed, packing our hospital bags, buying all the last odds and ends, having the last 2 showers. Hoping she stays put through the showers!
